It’s time to step away from the keyboard for a few days to spend time with family and friends in celebration of the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
We at America, You Asked For It! want to wish everyone (yes, even our political enemies) a very Merry Christmas!
Two different schools of thought. President Obama denies it, Rep. Randy Forbes (R-VA) wants to affirm it.
Obama: “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.”
Forbes: “What was that moment in time when we ceased to be so?”
This is the first of what I intend to be a weekly series.
It’s just impossible to write an original post on everything that needs covering, so each weekend I’ll post an excerpt from other blogs I follow of articles on issues that I simply couldn’t find the time to cover that week.

Haste Makes Waste: Feds Send Millions in Stimulus Checks to Dead People
The government is saying the error happened because they had to get things done in a hurry. Because of the perceived time pressure, the have sent millions of dollars in stimulus money to people like “Romolo Romonini, who died in Italy 34 years ago.”

Obama Warns America’s Debt Load is Unustainable
Can you believe it? After creating the largest spending program and largest deficit in American history, President Obama warns us about something every Tea Party American knows: that the American Debt Load is unsustainable. Thanks for putting us in this position Mr. Obama!…

The Right Stuff….
I’m so proud of Carrie Prejean. When asked her opinion about a current divisive political issue during the Miss USA pageant, she took the more difficult path of honesty. Some might have chosen the easier, more traveled path of evasiveness or outright dishonesty, but she chose the “road less traveled.” She gave her opinion in an almost apologetic way, stating clearly that she didn’t wish to offend anyone.

New York Times Reports Half The Story in Afghanistan
On today’s front page, the New York Times goes to every effort to recreate the narrative of Mai-Lai in Vietnam, only this time in Afghanistan. Unfortunately, they do so with only half the story. This much we think we know: One night last week, American forces in the middle of a drawn out battle with insurgent Taliban forces, launched an aerial attack on enemy targets. It appears many civilians were killed during the battle.

Pelosi, the CIA, and the Dems’ dangerous blame game
We had dueling press conferences this morning with Nancy Pelosi accusing the Bush CIA of lying to her about waterboarding and House GOP leader John Boehner defending the integrity of the briefers.
Pelosi had a particularly frozen look on her face throughout her presser as she repeated the “Bush lied about Iraq” mantra to justify her own inaction:
From the Washington Times
President Obama is distancing himself from the National Day of Prayer by nixing a formal early morning service and not attending a large Catholic prayer breakfast the next morning.
All Mr. Obama will do for the National Day of Prayer, which is Thursday, is sign a proclamation honoring the day, which originated in 1952 when Congress set aside the first Thursday in May for the observance.
For the past eight years, President George W. Bush invited selected Christian and Jewish leaders to the White House East Room, where he typically would give a short speech and several leaders offered prayers.
As usual, preceded and followed by the shameless ad as Obama continues to seek financial gain from his position as POTUS-elect, here’s Obama’s radio address from last week.
This week, Obama stresses that government policy will return to science based policy, “especially when it’s inconvenient.” He announces his appointment of Dr. John Holdren as “Assitant to the President for Science and Technology.
What he doesn’t say, or at least doesn’t put into words, is we’re going to make a concerted effort to break any ties America may have with those pesky principles associated with the Judeo-Christian belief system. You see, that’s what the left really means when they try to convince you the right doesn’t support the advancement of science and technology.
The left attempts to ridicule opposition to stem cell research, human cloning, and global warming as the result of some right wing conspiracy to suppress knowledge, ignoring the fact that all of their theories on these issues are nothing more than conjecture and reactionary responses. They also refuse to acknowledge that unfettered access to capital to explore them poses real risk of results that would be as harmful as those they envision would be helpful.
Well, enough of that rant. Here’s your weekly radio address by President-elect Barack Hussein Obama.
Terri Camp could use your help. She’s truly an inspiration to those who believe in
conservative values, clinging to those values in the face of extreme adversity.
She’s not asking for your money or sweat or blood or your first born, just read this post on her blog and leave a comment.
It’s not often you have the opportunity to help someone so much by doing so little. So, please take the time and give her a hand. You can make a miracle happen today.
I just wanted to take a moment and wish all readers of this blog a Happy Thanksgiving. Even when the world is seeming to fall apart around us, things could always be worse. Here are some things I’m thankful for, in order of greatest importance to least…
1) That God sent His son to die for our sins.
2) My wife and two wonderful daughters.
3) My parents, sisters, cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.
5) That I live in the greatest country in the world.
6) My job as a high school math teacher.
7) My students.
8) My dogs.
9) Being debt free.
10) My possessions.
I truly am blessed and fortunate and wish for many blessings for all my friends, both liberal and conservative.
